In Topic: Making a Autococker

Its very possible to build an autococker from scratch. There's not many companies still making new parts anymore, lots of parts can still be found used. First I'd suggest finding a body that you like, and going from there.

Not all spools are blow forward but Im not going to get into that...

The Mini has an oring on the poppet but the dump chamber air is released by a valve that is face sealing. The poppet is opened by air which acts as a ram. THAT is a pressure-controlled poppet (since a difference in pressure controls the opening of the valve).

I cant find any real writing on how the NT operates but from what I did find and the animation you provided the red air flow from the solenoid moves the small spool inside the engine forward, which STOPS the airflow to the dump chamber (with an oring seal) and releases pressure behind the bolt (with an oring seal) forcing it forward until it releases the dump chamber. I am honestly at a loss for where you see a face seal in this design or valve opened by inertia.

I think that your argument is well thought out and valid and I like the way you explained it.  I still maintain my opinion but since the NT isn't labeled as either, I am satisfied with an agreement to disagree.  It was a good a

I'd find an ebolt
